Our local Western Mass corn mazes are open for the 2022 season. Corn mazes are a really fun activity in the fall and we’re lucky to have two really awesome mazes right here in Franklin County.
Hick’s Family Farm Corn Maze
The Hick’s Family Farm is a fifth-generation family-owned farm and this will be the 12th year of them having a corn maze. This year, you can play the scavenger hunt game in the maze and play mini golf in the field. They will also have some farm animals which visitors can see, plus a grill with hamburgers, hotdogs, and more for sale. Be sure to also visit their farm stand to pick up your own pumpkin.
On Saturday and Sunday nights from 7 to 9 pm, the Hick’s Corn Maze becomes haunted! If you want to be spooked, this is a great time to go check out the maze.
Admission to the corn maze is $10 per adult and $7 per kid 12 and under. Hick’s Corn Maze can be easily found on the Mohawk Trail in Charlemont, MA. Visit hickscornmaze.com for more information.
Mike’s Maze at Warner Farm in Sunderland is more than just a corn maze, it’s a thematic experience! Over the years, Mike’s Mazes have gained national attention for their creativity and intricacy. Each year the maze has a different theme and design. This year’s theme is “Action!” The maze features 8-acres of motion-picture magic, movie trivia, and an epic playground fit for a Hollywood stunt double.
There are lots of other activities for people of all ages at Mike’s Maze, including a ride on a horse drawn wagon, fire the mighty potato cannons, and pick out your own Halloween pumpkin. Stay for lunch at the Corn Cafe, serving farm fresh food all day.
Located in Sunderland, Massachusetts, the idea for Mike’s Maze was born over 20 years ago at a Christmas party. Farmer Mike Wissemann and artist Will Sillin teamed up to create incredible corn art. In 2015, Mike’s son David Wissemann and his wife, Jess Marsh Wissemann, took over for Will, and have since created mazes that have gone viral, such as “Alice in Sunderland.”
